Juliet Cutler, Principal

Juliet Cutler, principal at Nomad Studio, has developed more than 50 interpretive plans and exhibits on natural resources, historic sites, and cultural heritage for clients across the United States, Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom, and the Middle East. Her work consistently demonstrates her ability to artistically and concisely translate complex and detailed concepts into straightforward, engaging programs and exhibits for children, teens, and adults.

As an educator by training, Juliet always approaches interpretation from multiple points of view to create meaningful plans and exhibits that integrate art, science, history, and culture with solid education theory. Her work demonstrates her commitment to helping clients achieve meaningful connections with people and powerful links to places through interpretation.

Juliet is also an experienced writer and graphic designer, which makes her unique in her field. She is gifted at understanding audience demographics and needs, identifying core messages, and developing creative and appropriate strategies to convey those messages in a way that transforms research and facts into engaging story-based narratives that are visually striking.

Juliet’s work requires sensitivity to diverse perspectives and the ability to facilitate a common vision—something she is skilled at achieving. She has successfully worked with diverse communities throughout the world including several indigenous communities such as the Maasai, Inuvialuit, Lakota, Cherokee, and Caddo, to name a few. She regularly facilitates workshops, leads interpretive training sessions, publishes articles in her field, and presents papers at conferences on interpretation.

Juliet is a certified interpretive planner (CIP) and a certified interpretive trainer (CIT) through the U.S. National Association for Interpretation. She holds a masters of arts (M.A.) in communications development and English, and a bachelors of science in education (B.S.Ed.).
